February

Traditionally, the gemstone associated with the month of February is amethyst.  This has not changed in modern times, with amethyst remaining as the symbolic gemstone of the month.   Amethyst calms the emotions, creates clarity of thought, and assists in attaining wisdom. It is a stone of the mind; it brings calmness and clarity and helps the wearer to get in touch with his or her intuition, feelings and values. It has long been regarded as an aid to sobriety and eases compulsive/obsessive behaviour.
